Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai will undergo a significant makeover from mid-May to early October 2018, during which time the hotel will stop receiving guests to allow for the completion of a two-year renovation programme of the whole hotel.
The hotel will relaunch in early next October, in time for its 21st anniversary celebrations in December 2018, with a fresh look and new guest facilities.
The work will extend to 425 guest bedrooms, the public spaces, lobby, retail areas, beach and outdoor facilities, restaurants and dining outlets. This follows initial renovation work completed this year, which covered 172 rooms and three suites, the Kids Club, beach and beachfront restaurants.
Sven Wiedenhaupt, general manager of Jumeirah Beach Hotel, said: “We are very excited that Jumeirah Beach Hotel is to undergo such a significant transformation. The refurbishment project has taken careful planning and consideration, and although both our loyal guests who stay with us year after year and the Dubai community will miss visiting their favourite hotel and restaurants during its renovation, I can assure them that a brand new Jumeirah Beach Hotel experience is coming, that will be well worth the wait. The famed wave-shape exterior of the hotel will remain untouched but the experience inside will be revamped, ensuring we are geared up to create another 20 years of memories.”
Although the hotel and its restaurants will be taking an extended summer break, Wild Wadi Waterpark will operate as normal for both external guests, and on an unlimited and complimentary basis for all guests staying at Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, Madinat Jumeirah, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, Jumeirah Emirates Towers and Jumeirah Creekside Hotel.
Other facilities that will also remain open and unaffected will include Talise gym and cafe, certain parts of the beach, The Kids Club for Talise members and La Veranda restaurant for lunch.
All guests who have reservations at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel during the renovation period will be offered alternative stays in Dubai at one of the premier beachfront properties within Madinat Jumeirah, the Arabian Resort.
